  • Pour apple cider vinegar in a small bowl (I use a 6 oz. Pyrex ramekin bowl).
  • Add 2 - 3 drops of liquid dish soap. Give it a little stir.
  • Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap.
  • Cut a small (1/2 inch-ish) slit in the plastic wrap.
  • Place near your fruit bowl (or wherever the fruit flies are hanging out).
